"Easy, clean and humble, this, his follow-up to Louisiana Summer, is well-written but simple." - Offbeat, New Orleans, LA

"Harrison follows in the footsteps of his heroes, telling stories that can make you smile right before they make you cry. Willie Nelson and John Prine would be proud." - Mother Church Pew, Nashville, TN

"East Nashville Blues lets Will Payne Harrison get 'Lost in the Sway' on a weaving fiddle run as he ponders a 'Strange Contradiction' regarding life in the fast lane, and quietly walks down Woodland Avenue into 5 Points after a night of drinking asking a companion to 'Stay with Me'." - The Alternate Root Magazine, Los Angeles, CA

"Keep an eye out for the new album... You won’t want to miss it!– No Country For New Nashville, Nashville, TN

Everyone knows that Louisiana is a great melting pot of music, food and Southern culture. Will Payne Harrison simmered in that pot for most of his life, soaking in influences of Traditional Cajun, Louisiana Blues, Swamp Pop, New Orleans Brass Bands and Zydeco. Even after departing Louisiana for Nashville to start his own solo career, he has kept in touch with his Louisiana Roots making his own unique blend of Americana and Roots music. On East Nashville Blues, Will Payne Harrison dove deeper into Bluegrass, Country and Singer-Songwriter genres, using a cast of top-notch Nashville musicians. With his newest album, Living With Ghosts, Harrison went back to his roots, bringing in the Crème de la crème of Louisiana musicians featuring The Rayo Brothers members (Jesse Reaux, Lance Kelehan and Jordan Ardoin) along with lead guitarist Jim McGee and even some harmonica from Fawn Larson. Slated to be out in late Summer/early Fall, Living With Ghosts will encompass the perfect blend of Will Payne Harrison’s Louisiana/Nashville sound.
